Name Round the World. Royal Flush style

The plan is to rock the world for 15 months and come home with a profit. After spending countless 60 hour weeks at my wall street job and reading the 4 hour work week I have decided to leave my beloved New York and become a resident of the world.

My rough sketch involves the following plan:

Feb-April: Live in Buenos Aires. Play poker/create SEO sites for 30-40 hours/week.
May: Machu Pichu, Amazon, Rio and whatever else gets recommended to me about South America
June-August: Paris- doing much the same thing as Buenos Aires
September: Northern Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia
October-December: Sydney- same as Paris/Buenos Aires
January: India
February-April: Tokyo

I am also considering trying to work in Kilimanjaro and Kenya somehow.

Anyways, this trip is no joke. I have spent the past 2 months playing poker (I have been playing profitable poker for years but recently decided to dedicate myself and read multiple theories) and can reasonably expect to make anywhere between $50,000-$90,000 at my current ability. It is a very zen like an conservative approach which I can gladly teach you if you want to follow the same path as me. But I am not trying to push the poker. Or any part of this trip for that matter.

I have traveled through Africa, Europe, Australia and Asia with friends and would love to be able to share this journey in parts or entirety with some kick ass people. Preferably party people as I expect to be immersing myself in the night life as much as the culture.
